Audio Read Navigators are easy to use

 

Audio-Read Navigators are here. If you are vision impaired and would like to listen to books with an easy to use device then ask us about Navigators. They are not much bigger than a remote control, provide quality sound and there are plenty of books that can be uploaded to the device.

If you are interested in using a navigator or know someone who may benefit from it, please contact the Library on 6393 8132.

Freeda the Library mascot had a fantastic time meeting children calling into the Library for Forbes Down Town Reading Day. Children discovered her favourite hobbies and food (can you guess?) and then enjoyed the story Wombat Stew! Thank you everyone who came along to see Freeda. Our giant platypus had a wonderful time.
